Android :: Developing Smartphone App On Which Devices Suggest To Check App?

Aug 18, 2010

Before publishing a new app on the market, on which devices would you suggest to check whether it runs fine or not? What are your experiences? How do you handle this?Are there some empirical values, for example, do applications that run smoothly on a HTC Desire behave similar on all HTC devices? Are there some devices on which the app should definately be checked?I like to picture myself releasing a high quality product instead of throwing some crap on the market. :) But I suppose I am not the only one who cannot buy like 5 or more devices just to ensure that the apps works fine on every kind of device.

Android :: Module Version Conflicts Between Wlan Module - Kernel Source

May 17, 2009

I'm tinkering with building and installing Android from source. Basically I've got it down fairly well, but I seem to have run into a bit of a problem with the wlan module, probably from HTC.

Having pulled the 2.6.27 kernel sources and built that with a .config pulled from the phone, and using that as the kernel image instead of the prebuilt one, I get the following wifi failure message in dmesg:

wlan: version magic '2.6.27-00205-gf2dabc0 preempt mod_unload ARMv6 ' should be '2.6.27-00392-g8312baf preempt mod_unload ARMv6 '

probably because the .config I pulled from the phone has:

CONFIG_LOCALVERSION="-00392-g8312baf"

So I rebuilt with the '00205' localversion and now I get in dmesg:

[61.122497] wlan: Unknown symbol trout_pwrsink_set

but trout_pwrsink_set was changed to htc_pwrsave_set way back in February:

[ARM]: trout: Switch from trout_pwrsink -> htc_pwrsink 33/8933/1 http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=kernel/msm.git;a=commitdiff;h=44a01f...

I'm clearly getting an obsolete wlan module somehow, Any ideas for how I can get a wlan module that goes with the '00392' kernel would be appreciated.

Android :: How Can Check If Returned Location Is Reliable

Jan 4, 2010

I know how to get the calculated GPS position via getLastKnownLocation (). As tests show, this function really always returns the last known location, so it doesn't matter if there is a gps fix available.

How can i check if the returned location is reliable? I tried it with getAccurracy(), but this function even returns a accurracy although no gps fix is availavle (anymore). Is there a possibility to get gps dop values? Used SDK is 1.6.

Android :: Check For GPS Support In-App / To Add Feature / Location Services Enabled?

May 24, 2010

How can I check for GPS support in-App to add a feature for those with Location services enabled?My concern is, I know I'd have to specify the tag in the manifest to declare that the app uses location services, but I still want the app to function for those without. I just want to check and, if the service is available, use it; otherwise just ignore that one feature.

Android :: Background Practices (Interact With Network And Check Location)

Aug 27, 2010

My application needs to perform some activities in background (like interacting with the network and check the location and some other stuff), having or not the main activity visible. Which is the best way to achieve this? Should I write a service for each kind of job? Or just one service that performs everything? I am aware that I will need to launch threads / asynctasks in any case because the service runs on the same thread of the UI, but maybe having several services is a more clear and readable structure.

Check Location In Background Service

Mar 1, 2012

I wanna background service which is looking every minute for the location.

So I created a service and created a broadcast receiver connected to the alarm service.

That works generally fine.

Now I wanna check the Location in that Service, I have a Service which is looking first for "gps" and if not available then for "network" location. That works fine!

Now my confusing case: If I am at home and connected to the WLAN the Location is found every minute and give me an notification in android bar all is fine!

But if I am on street and go around it doesnt work. The Service is just running when I touch the screen and make it active, then the service starts and gives me the location.

Why the service just works at street when I have the screen active? And at home in my WLAN it works always even the screen is not active.

Android :: Android Developing For Tablets Harder Than Developing For IPad?

Apr 17, 2010

First of all, I just want to say I am a software developer, but I am not an Android developer. However I usually walk around and think on stuff. AndI've been recently thinking all the news concerning how fragmented Android is getting, with different Android versions and tweaks by different phone manufacturers, and then for developers you have different size formats. An example would be that HTC Tattoo might not be able to run everything that another phone might run, due to different screen formats, etc. And now the Android tablets are coming with different Android versions and different screen sizes, all from 5" to 11". Will this make developing Android applications harder? Apple has it safe here since they manufacturer all devices that run the iPhone OS: the pods, phones and now the pad so they can easily control and make sure not to loose any customers by introducing a new device. When Apple introduced iPad they had to make sure that all the old iPhone applications would work on the iPad. They solved that neatly by saying that iPhone applications will simply be stretched out to the double size and it would fit on the iPad. Unfortunately Android does not have the same luxury to do this. As I said, I am not an Android developer. Just a curious software developer For you guys who work actively in the Android community, does Google have a solution for this? Will you be able to run phone applications on the tablets? Is there a bridge between the devices? Are there any standardizations or will Android development become even more fragmented? you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Developers" group.

Android :: How To Make A Downloadable DRM Module

Feb 20, 2010

I am trying to make a DRM module downloadable on Android.

I've already applied our modules in embedded system. To apply a DRM module in Android, I made it as a CPM Plug-in of OpenCore and added its uuid in pvplayer.cfg. After applying, DRM-protected music contents can be played in Music Application of Android.

I've planning to make the module downloadable because I want that drm- protected music contents can be played in not only new android phones but existing android phones, after a user downloads and installs it in their phones. BUT, we have a lot of difficulties in finding method.

If anyone knows any method, could you tell me? I have another question. When myAppl.apk is installed in Android, I want a .cfg file written in /system/etc. Is it possible?

Android :: How To Define GPS Module In Phone

May 16, 2010

I'm porting android to Devkit8000 which is a BeagleBoard clone. I have a GPS module connected on /dev/ttyS0. I could successfully get NMEA output when writing "cat /dev/ttyS0" in the terminal emulator.

I want to know how to let android know that there is a GPS module on /dev/ttyS0 and it is outputting NMEA standard? To be able to use the android.location class with it! or test it with any GPS app in the store!

Is there something to edit in the android's source? adding driver for example, writing a code with android-ndk or what?

HTC Hero :: Enabling GPS Satellites - To Check Or Not To Check

Nov 6, 2009

Menu - Settings - Location - Enable GPS satellites

It states that enabling this will "require more battery plus view of sky"

When checked, it states "deselect to conserve battery"

So, the question is, should this be enabled?

I imagine for some applications, knowing your precise location should be useful, especially if the turn-by-turn maps are installed and used.

I'm thinking to deselect this, and selecting it at times when I need it.

So, to check or not to check?

Android :: Location Manager Minimum Update Time Overridden / When Location Changes?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm developing a mapping app using Eclipse 3.5.I'm setting the minimum update period with the LocationManager's requestLocationUpdates method, via a configuration activity. When I set the property I see in Logcat that the system process sets the value OK.When I actually send a new location from the DDMS emulator control and the location changes on the map view, I see that the system process then sets the minimum time to zero.Below is a capture of the system's log messages. You can see that I'm setting the period to 32 seconds, then 16, then, after I've sent a simulated location change the system sets it to zero.The map responds to location changes to location changes instantly even if they are sent only a couple of seconds apart.

Android :: When I Start To Compile Launcher Module - Lots Of Errors Occurred

Jun 17, 2009

I switched to SDK-1.5-R2, and also the source code released in May, 2009. But when I start to compile the Launcher module, lots of errors occurred.

Some classes cannot be resolved cause there are no such classes in Android.jar file. I.E. android.os.ServiceManager; android.app.ISearchManager;

and some fields inherited from parent class cannot be resolved either. I'd be very appreciated if anybody help me out of this problem.

Sep 17, 2010

In my application I have to fetch the current location. First it correctly fetches the location. But we are moving from the current location to some other location. It shows the previous address. It is not updating the location. My code is: locManager = (LocationManager)getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE); locListener = new MyLocationListener();locManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager .GPS_PROVIDER ,0,0,locListener); location = locManager.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);if(location != null){latitude = location.getLatitude();longitude = location.getLongitude();} Please find the mistake and when i launch first time it is not working on second time itself it is working so check this thing also.

Android :: Testing Location Using Network As Location Provider?

Bypass Module Checking With Insmod?

Nov 5, 2013

i'm a computer forensics student who's trying to explore android forensic possibilities. I have compiled a module for testing devices (i have access to a Samsung S2 and a Galaxy Nexus running 4.1 and 4.0 respectively) in which i want to insert the module into the phone (i.e. insmod module.ko).

My problem is, i'm always faced with the problem of "insmod invalid module format" everytime i try to insert the module into the phone. I know that i can correct this by reflecting the appropriate kernel version in the vermagic string when i compile my module but i wanna find a generic way to do this; in other words, i wanna find a way to bypass this kernel version checking everytime i try to insert the module.

I've come across insmod having the -f flag as stated here (this would theoretically bypass the kernel version checking and i wanna verify this theory) insmod.

General :: Unable To Install MODULE

Dec 10, 2013

Unable to install MODULE, I have a problem regarding my A13 android tablet device. It doesn't matter if I will post the brand name of my tablet or whatever because what I only wanted to fix is this. When I follow every instruction written at this link, and following instructions 1-7, after reaching step 5 execute run.bat. It displays the following image I screen captured. (And my tablet doesn't reboot, it's the sign that the computer can't access my tablet.

Obviously, my tablet is connected to the computer via USB cable after running the run.bat as administrator.But what is the problem why it is happening to me. (Additional information: I already installed and followed this instruction on this same device with no error at all. But why does it happened to me even I installed this with success before. I don't change any system file on my tablet before, and I don't know because,I didn't change any file or modify file neither on my tablet nor from my PC.)

Sprint HTC Hero :: Overclocking / What Exactly Is Module Remover?

Aug 28, 2010

I finally received my Sprint Hero yesterday and have been using the hell out of it since. Today, I rooted and installed Fresh 2.3.3 and I'm loving it so far - in fact, I'm using wireless tether right now, as where I'm at, I have no internet yet. The thing is, I'm wondering how to overclock now. I've been attempting to read-up on it and it sounds a little complicated, almost as though I need to rewipe my phone and set everything up again. Is this the case?

Looking at this, I've been trying to decipher it:
[KERNEL][7/22/10]Darchstar's Overclocked Undervolted kernel for senseUI roms vUV 2 - xda-developers

What exactly is a module remover and why do I need to do it? Moreover, I didn't see an option to flash a new kernel (maybe I just wasn't paying attention) when I was in the RA or whatever it's called. I'd love to get my Hero running a little bit quicker. Otherwise, I'm loving the thing so far.
